Former Starz, AMC execs Liz Spaulding and Jennifer Moon land at BritBox International

Liz Spaulding and Jennifer Moon

Streaming service BritBox International has appointed former Starz exec Liz Spaulding as VP of business development and ex-AMC exec Jennifer Moon as head of editorial and programming strategy.

Both will be based in the company’s New York office and report to Robert Schildhouse, who joined BritBox International as exec VP and general manager, group marketing services in the autumn.

Spaulding, formerly the director of distribution at Lionsgate-owned Starz, will focus on growth opportunities, distribution and commercial partnerships, and providing insights to inform the company’s strategic direction.

In addition to Schildhouse, she will also report to Kerry Ball, who joined BritBox as global chief acquisitions and commercial officer in summer 2022.

Moon, who was with AMC for more than a decade, most recently as director of multiplatform programming, will lead the US and Canadian programming strategy, content acquisition and content scheduling.

The new additions come on the heels of a pair of significant departures. Diederick Santer, Britbox International’s chief creative officer, is set to exit the company next month after resigning at the end of last year.

In addition, earlier this week it was announced that Emily Powers, the former head of BritBox in North America, had left the company in October and has now joined Hallmark Media as executive VP of streaming and digital platforms.

Recent and upcoming releases for BritBox International, which is 50/50 owned by ITV and BBC Studios, include ITV drama series Archie, about the life of English-American actor Cary Grant, and ITVX coproductions The Confessions of Frannie Langton and Stonehouse.

“Both Liz and Jennifer have a deep understanding of the rapidly changing streaming landscape and excellent skillsets that will help BritBox continue to evolve and be the destination that premium British content fans flock to most,” said Schildhouse.
